The reason our family came back to Finland was because of many prophecies. God spoke in many ways that He would give us a base in Finland. After travelling throughout Finland seeking where to start this base, it was clear that the Lord had chosen theKuopio area.
It was 2004, and we arrived in Kuopio with 2 days to find a house for our family to rent. However, there was nothing suitable for our family to rent. There were many but they were only for sale. Our son was looking on the internet and found “Koivumäki”, an old school building for sale!We had no money, but we felt that we should go look at it. As soon as we came into the property, I knew this was for our Mission.
We found out later that God has spoken to a businessman from Kuopio to help us in buying Koivumäki. He came and paid the down payment, and it was ours. It is really amazing how God orchestrated everything because it was the first place where we looked at in all of Finland, “GOD” gave it to us.
We also found out that there had been many praying believers who used to teach in this school and about a great revival that had taken place in this part of Finland years ago. God hears the prayer of His people. They had been praying for this school to be used for God’s purposes.
Furthermore, they mentioned that there had even been a prophecy that there would be a church in Koivumäki. During our First Christmas party for all the neighbours, one of them got up and said,”Now this prophecy is fulfilled”. His church is His people working and living in this old school.
